Bottled Up

by Jaye Murray Year Published: 2004

Issabella Chong, a freshman from Whitinsville, read Bottled Up by Jaye Murray. This book tells a very harsh and honest story of a troubled boy named Pip who is trying to take care of his little brother while dealing with family drama.

 
“My favorite character in the book would have to be Pip’s younger bother Mikey. Mikey is six years old and is a very curious kid. He reminds me of my little sister,” Issabella said. Mikey is always asking questions, which causes Pip to give him the nickname “Bugs.” Mikey is also very unaware of most of the situations happening at home. I would recommend this book to my friends because a lot of them are going through some similar problems.”
